Default Some of Ovenden's supporters

http://www.thisiscornwall.co.uk/Arti...ail/story.html


...the art world rallied, (Ovenden) with some signing a petition demanding the police to return the material.

Names on the list included Sir Hugh Casson, architect, painter and author, Laurie Lee, author, Peter Blake, artist who designed the sleeve for the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Lucinda Lambton, writer, photographer and broadcaster.

From wiki...


Sir Hugh Casson
A close friend of the British royal family, Casson designed the interior of the royal yacht Britannia and is also credited with having taught Charles, Prince of Wales to paint in watercolours. He also served as Provost of the Royal College of Art. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1970, and was its President from 1976 to 1984.

Sir Peter Thomas Blake, CBE, RDI, RA (artist)

In the early 1970s, he made a set of watercolour paintings to illustrate Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass using a young artist, Celia Wanless, as the model for Alice and in 1975 he was a founder of the Brotherhood of Ruralists. Blake moved back to London in 1979 and his work returned to earlier popular culture references.


Familiar cultural icons which can be seen on the cover include Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, Charles Manson (replacing the original image of Marilyn Monroe, which could not be used for legal reasons) and the seven dwarfs from Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.
